Is a bit annoying in some respects, shame the film didn't come out a decade earlier! When I was at school I was originally very vocal about liking Star Trek, it got me a bit of a reputation as a nerd and so through the later years of high school, college and uni I really toned it down and kept it quiet for fear people would label me a nerd. These days I'm a lot more comfortable with myself and anyone who decides to try and pick fun at me liking Star Trek I just don't associate with them, luckily they are few and far between and generally maturity comes with age.

Liking the movie or not, this film proved the general public wrong. This film made Trek fresh to the average movie goer and it was so nice to hear that people became more interested in Star Trek after this film came out. But yeah, I would read Star Trek books all the time in elementary school and middle school and I wouldn't care what people thought about me. It was something I really enjoyed and that is what made me happy. I remember in 8th grade I did a presentation on Star Trek and even though one person called me a geek, someone else came to my defense and said that Star Trek was cool. Put a smile on my face. But yeah, it bugs me how people compare Star Wars to Star Trek. Totally different things! It's like, if Star Wars didn't start with the word "Star", then no one would put those two together.
